Her Story - Francoise Barre'-Sinoussi

WOW! This month's HerStory yarn really brings be back to the 1980's when shoulder pads and Laura Ashley were all the rage. In the vein of the 1980's this is also a time in history when AIDS was running rampant across the United States, Africa and Europe.

French born research scientist Francoise Barre'-Sinoussi was on the team of scientists who wanted to know whether or not AIDS was caused by a retrovirus. It was indeed and that began her journey into finding a cure for this disease. Read more about Francoise at her Nobel Prize page... she's an amazing human being.
